    2018 Cervelo R5

    Hello, considering buying the Cervelo R5 2018 which comes out if the box with Enve 3.4 carbon wheels, but NOT with the typical DT240 hub Enve usually mounts their wheels on, but rather a much cheaper version hub from Formula. Does anybody have an opinion on this specific Formula hub / Enve wheels combination ? Any of you had a chance to ride these wheels with the Formula hub ? I am thinking of switching the out of the box Formula hub to DT240, but I have to pay $800 more ! Let me know what you think... I had so many issues with Rotor in the past that I want to avoid at all costs similar issues with Formula. I don't understand why Cervelo uses Formula hubs rather than the suggested DT240 by Enve manufacturing. Same logic I guess when they used to have Rotor hubs and cranksets on previous models, which I had to replace after a year because of the numerous cric, crac, croc, rattles, etc. Much appreciated. Thanks a bunch.

    I got the R5 Disc with with the ENVE 3.4 wheels and the said Formula Hubs. Since I am Swiss, I'd have loved to see DT Swiss Hubs on this fantastic wheelset. But I have to admit, these Formula hubs did a good job so far. I've ridden them 2000 kilometers until today and have not had any issues at all.

     I would agree.  I was disappointed that the Enve wheelset came with the Formula hubs, but they spin up well, and seem to be okay.  I figure that I would ride them, and if they need replacing, change out to the DT Swiss.

    After a few thousand kms I’m not a fan.... unless I have the QR done up excessively tight the rims will rub excessively on the braking track when I’m climbing out of the saddle.... I will get rid of the rear hub at my first opportunity

    Well just pulled the trigger on the R5 'classics' frameset. It's going to take a while to build this up as I don't have the funds to complete the bike. Plan to go with DA9150.

    I just received my R5 Classics Edition frameset....doesn't seem to be a wrap. I'm not an artist but it appears that a stencil was used to paint the white dots. The white dots have texture when you run your hand over them.

    Hi Kookie, It is wrap with clear coat applied to prevent peeling and keeping the frame looking good for a long time. Its the same wrap used by the team last year except they did not have clear coat so they could take it off at the start of last years Giro. Enjoy the ride, only 150 were made :)

    Found out today that there is going to be a 2 week delay in the arrival of my R5d Classics frameset ! So frustrating! Anyone else experiencing the same??

    Re: 2018 Cervelo R5

     I'm waiting on my Classic frame as well. I had last years frame which is up for sale after I build the classic one up. I put hand built enve 3.4s on mine with Kris King hubs.

     

    Good to know about the delay

     

    Thanks
